Logitech’s official iPad accessories are just like Apple’s but a lot cheaper

If you’re enticed by one of the brand-new iPads then you’re probably weighing up the benefits of getting an official keyboard or an Apple Pencil for it too. Well, we’re here to tell you that’s a terrible idea – you should get Logitech’s cheaper versions instead.

Apple has finally shown off the new iPad (10th-generation) and two M2 iPad Pro tablets, and alongside them Apple has launched a brand new Magic Keyboard too. This stand-plus-keyboard hybrid makes it easier to use your iPad like a laptop but it comes at a pretty high cost. On top of the price of Apple’s tablet you’ll have to shell out $249, $299 or $349 / £279, £319 or £379 / AU$399, AU$489 or AU$579 for a compatible keyboard for the iPad (10th-generation) , the iPad Pro (11-inch, M2) or iPad Pro (12.9-inch, M2) respectively.

Thankfully, for those of you after the convenience of a keyboard and case to keep your shiny new iPad safer, there’s a great solution that isn’t as bank-breaking. Logitech makes its own iPad-compatible accessories that do exactly the same stuff, for a fraction of the cost.

Right now on Apple’s official store, you can find the Logitech Combo Touch Keyboard Case with Trackpad (opens in new tab) for the new iPad Pros. While still not the cheapest accessory in the world it’ll only set you back $199.95 or $229.95 / £219.95 or £239.95 / AU$299.95 or AU$349.95 for the 11-inch and 12.9-inch compatible options respectively.
